Project Sol to hold benefit concert for Rainbow House

Thursday, November 3, 2011 | 5:15 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — Project Sol, a partner of Rainbow House, will hold a concert with two local artists Sunday at the Missouri United Methodist Church, 204 S Ninth St.

The concert will begin at 7 p.m. and will feature Clay Cumbie and Ethan Voyles & Co. Audience members can expect both acoustic music and electric guitar rock, said Brenda Jackman, marketing director at Rainbow House.

In addition to the concert, Rainbow House staff will do a brief presentation about youth homelessness as well as share what Rainbow House is doing to help, Jackman said. The event coincides with Homeless Youth Awareness Month.

"(The purpose is) to create a sense of community as we press forward in the struggle against youth homelessness," Jackman said.

Attendees are asked to make an unspecified donation. The money raised will go toward meeting the needs of Rainbow House's Homeless Youth Program, Jackman said.

Rainbow House, located at 1611 Towne Drive, supports families in crisis through prevention, assessment and intervention in child abuse and neglect.

Project Sol is a campus organization that assists and partners with Rainbow House. Rainbow House has weekly volunteers from Project Sol who raise both awareness and funding for the organization, Jackman said.
